Sony Alpha a7C Mirrorless Digital Camera
The Sony Alpha 7C is the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame camera - without compromise. Featuring 24.2MP backside illuminated sensor, 4K movie with full-pixel readout, flip-out LCD and 5-axis in-body image stabilization. The a7C offers hybrid abilities and ideal to suit both photo and video recording needs along with a form factor for everyday, all-day carry and vlogging.
The Alpha 7C is for creators who demand full-frame quality and performance, but also want a compact lightweight camera they can take anywhere and use for all types of still and video creation. Introducing the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame camera1 with all the power and performance of a full-frame in a design more akin to APS-C bodies. Thanks to newly developed devices and construction, including a compact electromagnetic-drive shutter mechanism, a compact 5-axis in-body image stabilization unit and a monocoque magnesium alloy construction, the Alpha 7C redefines the norms of what a full-frame camera can be. Furthermore, the Alpha 7C with a FE 28-60mm F4-5.6 kit lens becomes the world's smallest and lightest1 full-frame camera and lens system.
The Alpha 7C features a 35mm full-frame 24.2MP2 back-illuminated Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor with front-end LSI and an updated BIONZ X™ processing-engine in the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame camera. It achieves high sensitivity and low-noise with an impressive ISO range of ISO 50 – 2048006 and massive 15-stop5 dynamic range. Images are processed in 16-bit form by the front-end LSI and BIONZ X processor before being output as 14-bit RAW data for improved expression of gradations from shadows to highlights. Full-pixel readout movie is oversampled from 6k and reordered as incredible 4K with no line-skipping, pixel-binning or cropping.
The Alpha 7C is exceptionally capable as a video camera, offering 4K3 (3840x2160 pixels) video recording across the full width of the full-frame image sensor. In video mode, it uses full pixel readout without pixel binning to collect approx. 2.4x the amount of data required for 4K movies, and then oversamples it to produce high quality 4K footage with exceptional detail and depth. Both S-Log2 and S-Log3 are available for increased color grading flexibility, while HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) 4 is included to support an Instant HDR (High Dynamic Range) workflow. The Alpha 7C can also record Full HD at 120 fps4 at up to 100 Mbps, allowing footage to be reviewed and eventually edited into 4x or 5x slow motion18 video files in Full HD resolution.
